Qorvo and ubisys announce IoTivity framework for smart home solutions

January 5, 2017 – Qorvo and ubisys have developed a new gateway solution. It allows various devices to communicate by integrating a ZigBee 3.0 and Green Power-based smart home network within the Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) IoTivity framework.

The open-source IoTivity framework provides specifications for device-to-device connectivity across physical media, transports and application layers. This framework is essential as the number of IoT devices – already in the billions – continues to grow. The global ZigBee home automation market alone is forecast to grow at a 26 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2016-2020, and when other markets like industrial and environmental IoT are added, the need for common specs is clear.

The Qorvo IoTivity plug-ins will support a single, multi-stack radio chip. Wireless products – such as the Qorvo GP712 chip – simultaneously handle multiple IoT network layers, including Thread, ZigBee 3.0 with Green Power and RF4CE networks. The highly integrated GP712 simplifies the design of IoT gateways, routers and set-top boxes. By reducing components and antennas, it automatically mitigates the coexistence challenges of multiple IoT networks.

Qorvo will feature live demonstrations of innovative smart home and IoT solutions at its booth during the international Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada, Jan. 5-8, 2017, Sands Expo, Halls A-D Booth #42114.

More information about the IoT is available by downloading the newest Qorvo free e-book series, “Internet of Things For Dummies.” The two-volume series is designed to help technical and nontechnical professionals understand the intricacies of the IoT.
